Future Womb Founder Mikaela Cochrane

 
 

I had the pleasure of sitting down with front woman, lead singer, and founder of Future Womb - a Psychedelic Darkwave Popera baby of the Canadian prairies - their words, not mine! Mikaela is vibrant, creative, and open to discussing her roots, experiences, and music with us. They have a single dropping today, March 15! And their album release will be April 19! Calgarian born and raised, we discuss everything from her start on a karaoke machine, experiences as a cis-female in the male-band-music scene, to musical theatre and, believe it or not, even her band's creation and creative process! It's a jam packed hour, hope you like it!
Thanks, as always, to Media Lab YYC for the recording, studio, mentorship, and general awesomeness. And to fellow Calgary Band Thomas Thomas for their track Gracious Host! 


Calgary Painter and Artist Dean Stanton

 
 

I had the great pleasure of sitting down with renown Calgary artist Dean Stanton! We chat about... well... pretty much everything! Art, politics (?), Calgary, creativity, you name it... we probably cover it somehow. At least... felt that way. Haha. You can see Dean's art all over the city but it's on our podcast that we get down to his story! Amazing how he's been able to be a self-employed artist in Calgary since the 90s! Great insight and mentorship.
Thank as always to Thomas Thomasfor their amazing track Gracious Host. And congrats on the recent announcement of their debut EP. We'll do our best to have some exclusive links here!
And of course to Media Lab YYC- without whom none of this would be possible!


Calgary Filmmaker Ingrid Vargas

 
 

I met Ingrid Vargas last year while building a photography show. She brought prints of floral film photographs. They were beautiful. But I soon learned her true form of artistry was the creation of movies! Amazing! She has given me the honour of chatting on record about art, Calgary, being a woman, among other things! Thank you to Ingrid, and of course to MediaLabYYC for the production. Thank you to Thomas Thomas for the killer intro/outro track. With all the big changes in my life to date, I'm super grateful to know so many amazing creatives in this city!
